Is it food for thought or food for card?

I just acquired a few special stamps this week. Actually, let's be honest, I acquired a lot more than that but I will just say a few for now *lol* and let you see the rest of them in the coming weeks. I seriously have been stamp deprived the past few days. I have been away from my stamp room for 2 full days and I have had stamps wait...calling my name!
Although I was away from home I had a great lil' family reunion with my brother and mum as well as my kids. Of course DH is working (as usual) so he wasn't able to make the trip. Yesterday we drove up to my FAV LSS on the island and would you believe I am now a VIP customer ?*lol*'s time to cut up the credit cards especially when the reward you for spending a chunk of change. I was so excited to add to my growing collection of Marvy punches and Bellas. While I pre-ordered some of the punches on Papertrey Ink I didn't order nearly as many as I wanted. So when I walked into my LSS and she had them hanging off the wall, I was a 2 year old who found some candy. Have you ever seen a 31 year old jumping up and down with excitement? Well that was me; the crazy lady in the scrapbooking store.

Now to the food...the card food of course.
